Information Today quotes me in “Enterprises turn to data breach insurance.”

Information Today recently published Enterprises Turn to Data Breach Insurance.  The article, by Kurt Schiller, has a great discussion about data breaches, the types of companies potentially affected by data breaches, and what insurance coverage options are available for data breaches.  The article contains a series of quotes from me on insurance coverage for all of those issues.  It also quotes Jim Whetstone, senior vice president of U.S. technologyand privacy manager for insurance firm Hiscox, Inc.

The article may be found here.  It is behind a paywall, so you must be a subscriber to access it.  The Information Today website notes:  “Articles in this issue of Information Today will be available later this month in a variety of formats — Preview, Full Text, Text+Graphics, and Page Image PDF — on a pay-per-view basis, courtesy of ITI’s InfoCentral.”

Risk & Insurance Magazine quotes me in: “Surprised That All Data Is Sacred”

In Surprised That All Data Is Sacred, Matthew Brodsky, senior editor/Web edition of Risk & Insurance®, wrote an interesting article about data breaches, insurance for data breaches, cyberinsurance coverage issues, and the Epsilon data breach.

Of course, my favorite part is the place where he quotes me about the issue of cyberinsurance policies:

With such a difference between one carrier’s cyberpolicy and another’s, the market is the “Wild West of insurance,” according to Scott Godes, [formerly] the Washington, D.C.-based counsel in Dickstein Shapiro’s Insurance Coverage Practice.

“There’s such a variety in the marketplace for cyber coverages,” he said.

There is more interesting discussion that goes on in the article, including comments from the CEO of a managing general underwriting agency, the person who runs the technology errors and omissions division at an insurance company, and others.
